Friday! Start of the weekends. As things tend to get a little less formal on friday, let me post something about a wine which is easy, affordable yet very good:
2010 Domaine des Souterrains Sauvignon Blanc
Made by Jacky GOUMIN, a fresh Sauvignon Blanc from Loire Valley, France. Just a couple of kilometres away from the famous Sancerre, Domaine des Souterrains makes this white in the same style as Sancerre: crisp, fresh, bone-dry Sauvignon Blanc. Hints of white fruit, passion fruit, goose berry. Very focused, pure fruit. Nice acidity. It’s not a wine that rocks your socks off, but at a price of €8,50 it is a very good effort.
This is a wine to start your weekend with.
